I find heroin is a good, character building pastime.

No, to be honest the gameplay in the stick of truth was way more simplistic than most JRPGs and it became repetitive way faster (I still haven't completed it because of how easy and dull I'm finding the game).

I seldom go to Mickie D's, but when I do I usually get a tepid burger with a side of damp chips, despite that not being what I ordered.

Getting a bit ahead of yourself. A title as big as V, will be brought to pc eventually.

I have friends that play this game. I think you shouldn't have too much trouble finding matches, although I think you'd be lucky at this point to find someone who doesn't know every heist variation pretty well by now.

Can't see this as anything other than a cynical cash in of a now acclaimed title.

This is a difficult argument to make. Books are the only medium that are pure narrative whereas games are really the only medium that can get away with absolutely no narrative and still be seen as 'good'. Also, games generally don't have very high standards when it comes to storytelling, certainly not on par with many movies/series.

I really can't see an argument as to why a book would be better off adapted into a game as opposed to, as you say, a movie or television series.

But I dunno, maybe The Three Musketeers? Only because every attempted adaption of those novels has always sucked, maybe a game could do better? (I doubt it)

I suppose there's the Witcher, although that is a non-canon continuation rather than a direct adaption. It would probably fall more under your last paragraph about game universes. Sure, it's got the same protagonist as the books, but he has amnesia, as to not leave the new audience in the dark. Now it was a damn good game, as well as its sequel, and has actually spurred me to read the books. So I guess that's one I didn't know I wanted to see adapted but now that it has been, I'm glad it did. If that makes sense?

To put it bluntly, I guess I never really married the two mediums and I kinda think for good reason.

Much rather this than say, Final Fantasy XIII Versus/ XV, which was first announced in 2006.

It inspires more confidence to have a company set a release date and stick to it, I don't want to be informed every time a developer has created a new mesh for the game.

Not many, thanks to the informative ways to the internet.

Perhaps Final Fantasy XIII. To hell with the XIII apologists. Because of my series expectations I found that game truly awful, like, really really terrible.

Oh and also Saints Row 3. Mainly because of the hype around it from this site. The gang loved it, I loathed it. Maybe it's an American thing because I found that game to be terribly unfunny. Like, Meet the Spartans unfunny. Yep...
